The De Sperado Code

The De Sperado Code, is a book written by De Sperado 007, a famous writer currently residing in Seoul. De Sperado's real name is Scorpius Maximus Indicus, but he felt that the name would not be too sexy, so he changed it to De Sperado and added the suffix 007. The De Sperado Code is an attempt to analyze the inherent meanings and philosophy in songs from Bollywood movies during the 80's and 90's, particularly of Swamy Bappi DaNanda .Who was he?  He was a rish, a sage, a Swami, who had long hair, wore goggles and sported flashy jewellery. He was famous for his hit songs, which many  people dismissed as trash.But De Sperado 007 spent an entire lifetime trying to find meaning in trash. It was a  daunting challenge and the results were published in The De Sperado Code. The following are some excerpts from the book.

Now there is a famous song from the movie Himmatwala, starring Jeetu and Sridevi. The song goes like "Ladki Nahin Hai tu Lakdi Ka Khamba Hai, Bak Bak Mat Kar Naak Tera Lamba Hai". But what is interesting is the challenge between the singers. He says "Aa Aa Idhar Tu Aa Aa"and she replies "Ja Ja Udhar Tu Ja Ja".  Now as per De Sperado, this is a very interesting military code. When the Japs were attacking Pearl Harbor, they came across a strategy to beat the Americans. So whenever they saw an American fighter plane, they would say "Aa Aa Idhar  Tu Aa Aa", meaning "Come American come We shoot You" and so thats how the Yanks walked into their trap. And similiarly whenever they saw a Japanese plane, they would say "Ja Ja Udhar Tu Ja Ja" meaning "Go Japanese Go, You Shoot Em". The first stanza "Ladki Nahin Hai Tu, Lakdi Ka Khamba hai" was a Japanese code word to identify US battleships, Lako Di Ko Khamba is the Japanese word for a battleship, as they believed US battleships to be a piece of log. Similiary Naak Tera Lamba Hai was the code word for US submarines, because the submarine had a very long nose. And since subs were not to be attacked, they said Bak Bak Mat Kar, in this case Bak Bak, being the code word for Banzai, or in effect "No Banzai, No Attack".

And then we have a famous song "Chad Gaya Upar Re" from movie Dalaal starring Mithun Da and Ayesha Jhulka. Now if we take the opening notes of the song it starts off as "Gutur Gutur". And then follows the stanza "Chad Gaya Upar Re, Attariya Pe Lotan Kabutar Re". After indepth investigation, research and analysis using Google Earth, De Sperado, has concluded that Attari is a place on the Indo Pakistan Border. Kabutar or pigeon is a means of communication. So Attariya pe Lotan Kabutar is the code word used, to indicate that an ISI agent has entered Indian territory, it has been found that most of the Indian Army personell use this code, to indicate that  some one has sneaked in from Pakistan. Again this song contains different codes here. "Udd Gaya Phar Phar Re" is the code to indicate that the ISI agent has fled from the scene, and "Mar Gaya Upar Re" means the ISI agent has been shot dead by the guards. And then this piece "panchhi deewana paaye jaha dana, Aaye wahi mud mud ke, atariya pe Sona Kabootar re" means that a very top spy has been imprisoned and will be taken away for questioning. Sona Kabootar is the code word for top agent.

Then follows a song on eternal love "Pyaar Kiya Hai Pyaar Karenge" from movie Ilzaam starring Govinda and Neelam. Now the very first stanza of the song "Pyaar Kiya Hai, Pyaar Karenge", now here this is a code indicating the eternal love between George Bush and President Musharraf. Yes love is universal and why should it always be between a man and a woman, why cant two men love each other. And thats what both Bushie and Mushie  mean when they say "Duniya ki Aisi Ki Taisi".  Yes both Bushie  and Mushiedeclare that they will love each other for eternity, and care a damn about what the world thinks. And then Mushie  says "Dil diya Dard Liya", obviously Mushie  was a big fan of Dilip Kumar, and he used this movie title. But it is also a reference to the fact that ever since Mushie gave his dil to Bushie, he has been having to face all kinds of Sar Dard back home. Meanwhile Ekta Kapoorwas so impressed by the eternal love story that she decided to remake Broke Back Mountain in Hindi starring Bushie and Mushie, to be titled "Kahani Bushie Aur Mushie Ki".*  **To quote Albert Einstein"Generations to come will scarcely believe that there actually was such a love story ever between Bushie and Mushie".

Neelam and Chunky Pandey go "Main Teri Tota, Tu Meri Mynah" in Paap Ki Duniya.Now again this was another code used during the Pacific War. After being outsmarted by the Japanese during Pearl Harbor, the Americans decided that they also needed to have a secret code, during their battles. So they came up with Tota, for Japanese, which was actually a code for Tokyo,  and the Yanks decided to use Maina, which was again a corrupt version of Maine, a small state in the US. Now Japs knew of New York and California, but they had no clue of Maine. So in the darkness, an American would say "Main Teri Tota", means "Maine To Ri Tokyo", and the reply would be "Tu Meri Mynah", which means "To Merry Maine". And that would mean all clear.

Now there was this priceless Tohfa some time back which Jeetu had given Sridevi saying "Ek Aankh Maaron To Parda Hat Jaaye, Do Ji Aankh Maaron Kaleja Ruk Jaaye, Dono Aankon Maaron to Chori Pat Jaaye".  Now the inspiration for this song was Indiana Jones. You see in Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indy found a young pretty student, constantly blinking her eyes at him. And thats when he contacted De Sperado for help. De Sperado, found that the girl had listened to this song, and was trying to patao Indy, by blinking both her eyes. But then De Sperado, found that there was a hidden meaning further in the song. At the same time Indy was searching for the lost Ark. De Sperado told Indy, that he was wasting his time, fighting, running from boulders, getting thrown in snake pits. This was not a song, this was a mantra, a very powerful Mantra called Bappi Mantra. So Indy learnt this mantra, and when he found that the Ark was behind a Parda, he blinked one eye, and the Parda opened. Then when his enemies came for the Ark, he simply blinked the other eyes, and all their hearts stopped. And to attract the heroine all Indy needed to do was to blink both his eyes, and she came calling to him "Dhanpaat". Last heard Indy was in India, sitting with his girl in a "Ganne Ki Khet" and listening to the "Koyal's Ku Ku Ku".
